The 2016 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 grabs where the currently qualified Mustang GT ends. It features a healthy and balanced increase in power along with countless upgrades to the framework that transform the Mustang into a formidable track vehicle.
Redesign – Exterior and Interior
Aesthetically, this is one of the angriest pony autos ever before developed, not to mention meanest looking Mustang. Ford has turned everything around 11 on the visual front for this brand-new vehicle. From the A-pillar forward, the car is totally different from a base horse in every method besides the headlamps.
The entire nose has actually been diminished in every direction to reduce aerodynamic drag. The outcome is a body that looks to be extended over the engine bay. There are parts of this new lower hood assembly that sit as long as two inches less than a base GT.
Along with its smaller size the nose has a complete array of aero upgrades, a brand-new splitter, and also every opening to channel air right into the vehicle has acquired bigger. Every item of the car has actually been updated purely to raise air movement and also wind resistant effectiveness.
The cockpit has been provided the exact same focus to sporting detail as the exterior. The guiding wheel has a level bottom to make slipping into and out of the specially made Recaro sport pails. Not just are these seats flawlessly shaped and also boosted for track driving, they additionally come covered in a special cloth particularly for the 2016 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350. The seats alone undertook hundreds of hours and also multiple models to make certain that they are comfortable for lasting drives and encouraging enough for the most hard-core track drives.
Thinking about the boost performance of the new car, the gauges have all been altered to mirror the new speeds and also revs the vehicle is qualified of. As is the situation with all modern high-performance cars, the new interior features a collection of driver controls that modify the ABS brakes, security and traction control systems as well as the suspension tightness as well as even exhaust adjusting.
2016 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 – Engine range and Specs
SVT isn’t attempting to cover its supercharged GT500 engine right here. Rather, anticipate a variation of the 5.0-liter V-8 that powers the Mustang GT. This engine could have a somewhat larger displacement than the stock system, as well as SVT is understood to be dealing with a flat-plane crankshaft for the “Voodoo” engine. The lesser turning mass with such an arrangement should enable this V-8 to rev past 8000 rpm and also provide concerning 550 horsepower.
We anticipate this engine to be placed exclusively to a manual transmission and send its power via a limited-slip differential.

The GT350 utilizes the exact same “S550” system that underpins the 2015 Mustang. We anticipate that this variation will ride on a substantially stiffer suspension with flexible dampers. Early driving test motor vehicles, identified around the company’s Dearborn, Michigan, headquarters, put on cross-drilled carbon-ceramic brake blades.
Those mules were additionally rolling on 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer season performance tires, with physical bodies punctured by a facility hood vent as well as what seemed useful fender vents behind the front wheels.
